This dinner comes together in a flash – you’ll get the pilaf started, roast your salmon, and at the very end toss in the greens. Our honey harissa glaze will bring it all together!
Type: Complete Dinner
Servings: 2
Kitchen Time: 30

 

Shopping List: 

  • Salmon (12-16 oz)
  • K&M Honey Harissa Glaze
  • K&M Classic Rice Pilaf Mix
  • Cilantro (1 bunch)
  • Spinach or Baby Kale (1 bag)

Pantry Items: 

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Cook rice pilaf per instructions on package (it will take approximately 20 minutes).
  3. Place salmon, skin side down, on a parchment lined sheet pan (large enough to hold both the greens and salmon). Season well with salt and drizzle generously with honey harissa glaze (about 3-4 Tbsp per portion) and bake for about 10 minutes.
  4. While the salmon is cooking, toss spinach or baby kale with 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil and 1-2 Tbsp of honey harissa glaze. About 3 minutes before the salmon is done, add greens to the sheet pan and return to the oven. When the salmon has finished cooking (it flakes gently and turns a sunset color) and the greens are wilted, remove sheet pan from oven.
  5. When the pilaf is done, chop ½ cup cilantro (include some of the stems – it’s the most flavorful part!) and mix in the pilaf.\
  6. Serve salmon and greens alongside cilantro pilaf with more honey harissa glaze on the side!

    Chef’s Tip: Not a cilantro fan? No worries, simply omit or replace with another green herb.
